References in the episode.

The Salvador Dali book I mentioned is, called  “50 Secrets of Magic Craftsmanship.”

The artist I mentioned in our chat is Mel McCuddin. He “finds the image” within the abstract expressionist “underpainting” that he makes first.

Carlos Castaneda was the South American writer I mentioned.
